As promised, here's a shot of the seersucker suit I recently ordered from Raja Fashions - the speed with which it was delivered astonished me. The results look good to my eye (I like that the white and brown stripes blend to make it look tan from any distance, and the patch pockets seem appropriate) and this weekend I'll discover how it wears in the heat of a Milanese summer.
I'm already thinking about two more seersuckers for next summer, one in mid-blue and white stripes, and one in red and white stripes, which should look pink. The jacket is styled here with a heavy silk tie from East London's Drakes and a shirt from Florence's Simone Abbarchi. Suit, £250, by Raja Fashions
